Lesson 1: Chinese Characters
课程一: 汉子

The Chinese language is represented by characters that look like symbols. Each character in the Chinese language is made up of one or more strokes and only carries one syllable.

To remember the component of each character correctly and to achieve good handwriting, it is important to be familiar with the basic structure of the Chinese characters. They have to be written stroke-by-stroke in the correct order.
